Our first birding trip to Kazbegi was successful, group was able to see most of the target birds in two days. We had very good views of Great Rosefinch and Caucasian Snowcock, also Caucasian Black grouse. Unfortunately, due to unusual warm spring group have skipped Guldenstads Redstart, it seems that they have moved higher but some entrance roads for different gorges was still closed, so we were not able to drive there. Since we had only two mornings for this birds there was not time to do hiking. Anyway, I was informed that there was snowing in kazbegi few days ago, it is good news because snow will push down birds and will make easy to see for the groups which are coming to Georgia in couple of weeks.
